  • 6
    ounces macaroni or 6 ounces other small salad-type pasta

DIRECTIONS

  • Cook macaroni according to package directions, just until tender.
  • Drain and rinse well with cold water.
  • Meanwhile, cook hot dogs as desired- grill'em, boil'em or pan-fry; cool enough to handle, then slice into circles.
  • If small children will be eating this, cut the circles in halves or quarters to avoid choking hazards.
  • Combine mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and salt & pepper in small bowl.
  • Place hot dogs and pasta in large bowl and add remaining ingredients.
  • Pour dressing over and toss gently with two spoons until all the bits are coated with dressing.
  • Chill for two hours or longer in refrigerator before serving.
